Sonning Fireworks Ltd was formed in 1999 by Chris Clarke, Tony Stevens, John Field and their school chemistry teacher Paul Brown. The three ex-students of Reading Blue Coat School had been helping their chemistry teacher run the school show since they attended the school.
Due to the health and safety aspects of student being involved in fireworks displays Paul always encouraged electrical firing of parts of the show so the students could be involved. This started off Chris Clarke on the path of becoming an expert in computer firing of shows.
2008 saw a change in the directors of the company seeing Tony Stevens leave and a long term crew member Neil Evans buy into the company.
